Emirates Airlines is now offering frequent fliers the ability to expedite their check-in with self-serve kiosks.
Using new kiosks located in Dubai International Airport , members of Skywards, the frequent flyer program of Emirates and Sri Lankan Airlines, who are carrying hand baggage only, can check themselves in for a flight using their Skywards membership card.
By inserting their membership cards into the kiosks, Skywards members may view their booking information to confirm or change their assigned seat, register their Skywards or partner frequent flyer miles, and print their boarding cards.
The new facilities are also available to customers who are members of Skywards` partner airlines - British Airways, Continental Airlines, Delta, Japan Airlines, Singapore Airlines, South African Airways and United Airlines - and will soon accept larger baggage in the aircraft`s hold.
